While cats and rabbits are always popular family pets, a local business reckons customers are in the market for something more exotic.
Creature Comforts, in Milngavie, currently has two mediterranean tortoises for sale - along with all the equipment you need to look after them properly.
These Hermann’s tortoises are only two years old at the moment but they could live to a grand old age of 100.
Craig Gordon, assistant manager, said: “Our more unusual pets are popular but we remind people that they need proper care and they can live for a long time.
“The tortoises will be fully grown by the time they reach about 12/13 years but they could live much longer than that so you need to be prepared for that.”
